The best and cheapest way IMO is the use of an aluminum puck that goes between the front axle and the spring cup. You can buy a 2" kit on e-Bay from Summit Engineering for $50.00 shipped. I had a 1 1/2" one on my F250 before I got the lift. It was nicely made.

Cheapest yes best your kidding right..
You will need a Castor set shims to regain the lost Castor from the lift.
Longer shocks or extensions
Adj track bar to relocate the axle as it will shift 1/2-3/4" per 2" of lift..its Geometry so no arguments from those who never took advanced math.

Best..get a quality kit with longer better riding springs and the parts required to do this correctly: Icon, RCD, Bilstein etc.

We offer a few different leveling systems:

The best riding will be the Icon.
